in reply to Using perl to extract data from multiple .txt files

Here's a short working example you can go from:

for (<*.txt>) { open my $fh, '<', $_ or die "Can't open $_: $!"; my $record = join(', ', map { chomp; $_ } (<$fh>)); # <== HERE print "$_: $record\n"; close $fh; }

Just replace the line marked <== HERE with your code. This writes to STDOUT, so you can redirect your output wherever you like, or just add an open and select to automate it if you'll always be writig to the same location.

Take care that the <*.txt> glob does not match your output file.
